A site for the Model Railway Layout named Barcoola. This is take on Tarcoola SA the junction between the Trans Australian Railway and the Central Australian Railway.
Now incorporating "A Town like Alice", my take on Alice Springs.

lots of stuff going on, weathering by Barcoola, and Pilbara locomotives.
I have been going flat out, and have been getting stuck into some serious Pilbara Modelling.
M636s 5498 5502 and 5496, all lined up, reminds me of the first time I went to the Pilbara, models are all fitted with sound, nice model, a fair bit of work.
Another example of faded weathering here is CL5, I have listed this on facebook
$300 if you are interested.
My current collection of Mt Newman locomotives, gota love that orange scheme.
5496 is still a little too clean, working on it.
I really like the end result of 5502 in BHP Iron Ore, one of only two Alcos painted in BHPO Blue.
A cluster of M636 lookalikes
A work in progress a BHP Billiton SD70Ace in pumpkin. Masking the roof was a real PITA
Any way thats what I have been upto at the moment, the layout room now has four sets of strip lighting, really starting to look good.
